WHO WE ARE
We are Hajjahs, women who have completed the pilgrimage to Makkah who want to help our sisters make this sacred journey. We are Muslimahs, the daughters of Hajar, who have run, and walked, and struggled to complete Hajar's journey from Safa to Marwah. We prayed in the Haram, made our seven Tawafs around the Kabah. We visited the holy city of Medina and prayed in the Prophet's Mosque. We want as many Muslim women as possible to have this experience.
Hajj is a gift from Allah and we feel blessed and called to help facilitate the receipt of this gift.
And proclaim to the people the Hajj [pilgrimage]; they will come to you on foot and on every lean camel; they will come from every distant pass.
Surah Al Hajj 22:27
Here I am, oh Allah!
WHAT WE DO
Our mission is to help Muslim women answer the call of Allah. Hajj is the fifth pillar of Islam. All Muslims are obligated to make Hajj once in their lifetime if they are physically and financially able. The Hajjah Project recognizes the special challenges of Muslim women of all ages in making Hajj a reality. It is not our intention to pay for the Hajj, rather we want to support the efforts of future Hajjahs through education, inspiration, and in-kind and cash gifts that help defray some of the expenses associated with Hajj.
